The Mia Moda Alto is part of the high chair
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, high chair
models like the Alto are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Safety for each high chair was assessed by our testing, which is based on the voluntary safety standard, ASTM F404-10. Tests include evaluations of the restraint system, stability of the high chair, and static and dynamic load assessments as well as other tests.
Ease of use:
Ease of use is based on trained panelists' assessments of harness adjustment and use, folding and unfolding, removing and replacing the tray and tray insert (if any), adjusting seat back and height where applicable, removing and replacing the seat cover.

There are so many nooks and crannies right where messy little toddler hands rest- the only way to clean was with a toothpick! I purchased this despite bad reviews because it looked so nice! I didn't want crazy colors or characters all over the chair that is going to live with us for a couple if years.... At this point, I welcome Pooh or Mickey! I hate hate hate this chair..<br /><br />I've never found a use for the reclining feature or for the height adjustment option.
